Competencies / intended learning achievements
Professional competence, methodological competence, social competence
Upon successful completion of the module, students will be able
- to deepen the concepts and methods of one-dimensional analysis specific to their subject and their practical application as required in the further course of their studies, since they have acquired a solid basis for the proper handling of mathematics in the engineering sciences;
- to model problems from the engineering sciences and to work on and solve them using mathematical methods, as they have learned and practiced this exemplarily.
In the exercise classes, the students have acquired a confident and independent handling of the terms, statements and methods from the lecture. They can apply the methods and concepts they have learned in examples.
Moreover, In the exercise classes, the presentation and communication skills of the students were trained via the written elaboration of solutions and the presentation in the face-to-face exercise classes. The ability to work in a team was promoted by working in small groups.
